Conference website:

AutomotiveUI, the International Conference on Automotive User Interfaces and Interactive Vehicular Applications, is the premier forum for UI research in the automotive domain. AutomotiveUI brings together researchers and practitioners interested in both the technical and the human aspects of in-vehicle user interfaces and applications. AutomotiveUI’12 will investigate novel in-vehicle services, issues related to driver distraction, approaches to improving driver performance, and the varying needs of different user groups. In addition AutomotiveUI’12 will explore the relationship between these topics and automotive user interface standards.


AutomotiveUI’12 invites you to submit original work in one or more of the following formats: full and short papers, workshops, posters, interactive demonstrations, and industrial show-cases. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • New concepts for in-car user interfaces (multi modal, speech, audio,  gestural, natural I/O)
  • Text input and output while driving
  • Interfaces to control in-car entertainment
  • Evaluation and benchmarking of in-car user interfaces
  • Assistive technology in the vehicular context
  • Methods and tools for automotive user interface research
  • Automotive user interface frameworks and toolkits
  • Detecting and estimating user intentions
  • Emotional state recognition while driving
  • Techniques for cognitive workload and/or visual demand estimation
  • Biometrics and physiological sensors as a user interface component
  • Detecting/measuring driver distraction
  • Sensors and context for interactive experiences in the car
  • User interfaces for information access (search, browse) while driving
  • User interfaces for navigation or route guidance
  • Applications and user interfaces for inter-vehicle communication
  • In-car gaming and entertainment
  • Different user groups and user group characteristics
  • In-situ studies of automotive user interface approaches
  • General automotive user experience research
  • Topics associated with automotive user interface standards
  • Vehicle based apps, web/cloud enabled connectivity
  • The role of subliminal cues and feedback to augment driving behavior
